In a game last week, Beitar fans protested against the possibility that their team was rumored to be considering signing two Muslim Chechen players, with fans calling out racist slogans against Arabs. Three Beitar fans were arrested.

Beitar initially demanded that the match be played in a stadium with no fans in attendance, but the Israel Football Assassination decided against this, based on Um el-Fahm's objections.

But it appeared that police had prepared for the wrong kind of disturbances. Arab fans of the Um el-Fahm team loudly shouted curses and epithets against the Jews and Israel. Eight Arabs were detained and released for attempting to start a riot, and for unfurling a Palestinian flag. They were ejected from the game, but police did not arrest them.

Yes. It was programmed to evade the Umis’ feet, knees, elbows and heads, and go straight at the J’lem team’s. A microchip guided it through the Umi goaly’s feet every time.

How do they have the Maccabee = the arab name?

I understand the town is a 100% arab suburb of Haifa; does the team name imply they are a farm team of of Maccabi Haifa?

Damned if I know. This whole thing sounds like a bad SNL skit in the first place, but that part of it is just weird.
